Back Again

We are home and safe. It was a nice weekend, full of good conversation, photo ops, beautiful Sierra vistas and a lake, fabulous food, a little poetry, a hammock, wine, walks, a stream for splashing and bridge-building, going to bed early, and, unfortunately, allergies for me. But it was all worthwhile. Mimi’s cabin is charming and decorated to the nines. She has impeccable taste and a love of artsy, unusual, old, funny things.

Asher only wrote on the furniture once. (Oh shit!) We feel we got away pretty lucky, considering all that our kids could easily have broken or ruined.

Asher is completely taken with Mimi; her name was the first word he uttered upon waking both mornings. He wanted to be with her all the time. He wanted to hold her hand and give kisses; he must have said "hi!" to her a thousand times (he has few conversation skills). Grandpa Glen is so, so tall and sometimes a little intimidating, but Asher didn’t seem to mind at all. He frequently poked GG with a stick, just to get his attention. Here’s a little teaser photo.

It was fun. I’m glad to be home now. Tomorrow is full of busyness.
